People you know or people you don’t know might try to add you as a friend on Houseparty and you can choose to ‘accept’ or ‘ignore’ them.
With your child, show them how to ignore friend requests from people they don’t know, even from friends of friends. Remind them video chatting is best kept to people you know, like close friends and family members, as a great way to keep in touch.
People can also use the ‘wave’ icon to say they want to chat. If your child doesn’t know who is waving at them, remind them to block the user.
And be aware, even if ‘Private Mode’ is switched on, people can still search your name and try to add you. In settings, you can change your child’s name and username to something more anonymous so they’re harder to identify in searches.
